Getting video to work in Keynote with mirrored displays

This morning I tried getting a short video to work as part of a Keynote slide for the Christmas Show.  Only it didn’t work – only the sound played.  A quick google turned up a few options:

  1. Turn off display mirroring.  This did seem to work, but it’s a pain.
  2. Tick the box ‘Allow Exposé, Dashboard and others to use screen’ in Keynote>Preferences>Slideshow.

The second option definitely worked better!  For those interested, in the Keynote preference file, it’s called ‘PresentationModePlayWellWithOthers’.
